During the Kansas City Chief’s divisional playoff win against the Colts on Jan. 12, the area around the home team’s Arrowhead Stadium got around 10 inches of snow.
And while the snow didn't appear to affect the actual quality of play, it resulted in enough damage to the turf that forced the Arrowhead Stadium groundskeepers to unexpectedly resod the field for the AFC title game against the Patriots on Jan. 12, according to an on cbssports.com.
Travis Hogan, head groundskeeper at Arrowhead Stadium says in a on Twitter that, “We weren’t planning a resod this week, but Mother Nature had other plans. Ten inches of snow and all the snow in the stadium being hauled out on the sidelines changed things. My crew did an unbelievable job.”
Near freezing temperatures are forecasted in Kansas City once again during the upcoming game, but thankfully having a field in poor condition won’t be an issue affecting the teams.
